Compliance and Non-Compliance with a Superordinate Directive Document

Helge Hernes () and Grete Erdvik ()

Public Organization Review, 2014, vol. 14, issue 1, 65-81

Abstract: We report a study of how a Norwegian regional health care agency directive document was complied with at the subordinate hospital level. We found tight coupling for the activity and budget requirements and loose coupling and decoupling for the other requirements in the document. Furthermore, rather than pursuing their own self- and group interests the hospital actors held an overall effectiveness logic. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media New York 2014
